Re: Help find out the time and the Finnish silversmith ( mark AGR )

What a wonderful item, so much of Finlands old silver is no longer in this country so it’s hard to find here now.

Re: HP conjoined

It seems from what I’ve seen the JHP conjoined is the first mark and this HP conjoined is second in the timeline.

HP conjoined

Just wanted to share this small 15cm dessert fork. It’s marked only with a lion passant and HP conjoined. Assayed before the date letter D started in York in 1779/80. One of the earliest forms of Hampston and Princes’ mark. https://i.postimg.cc/fy4zww51/0-BC6-A9-EB-8-D57-4-A9-F-B7-EB-2-D9-BA47643-C8...

The other spoon maker who’s work is similar is Robert Sallam.

Re: Can anyone determine the maker?

Hi Martin I would very much say this is typical of Benjamin’s work but just to help further here’s some pictures: https://i.postimg.cc/zvj6KBMP/22264583-C961-478-B-BD31-F25744-F0-E65-B.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/3N7zkpLv/9358-A98-E-02-AA-47-AB-8-CE0-6952-E82-C5-CA1.jpg Matt.

George Wintle - Once a forger always a forger?

I was really fascinated to come across this brightcut tablespoon by George Wintle dated 1786 right at the start at his career.... https://i.postimg.cc/T303hHyQ/B75-B5-C4-B-BCB9-46-BD-A3-BD-93338074-C0-E2.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/m2QDWrBv/C7-CD54-B5-B68-A-4-BA7-82-E7-01-C1-E45-CC040.jpg https://i.pos...

Re: Boat with sail AC? and NA mark??

Apart from being based in the South of England the rifles were in South Africa in 1846/7 and that’s all that fits in that time period.

Re: Boat with sail AC? and NA mark??

Thanks Trev! Glad you was able to see the engraving there should have been a 4th picture! It’s a fascinating spoon for sure, not sure if it was given to John Morris when he transferred to the 31st or on retirement? Also there’s a possibility it was a spoon that another army member had picked up from...

Boat with sail AC? and NA mark??

I have no idea where this comes from? India possibly? I’m sure I’ve seen the boat mark before but I can find nothing? https://i.postimg.cc/XJTRjt3S/2-C4672-D5-5571-4-A60-B7-D1-666-B7-E042-D3-C.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/0QMgqPT0/3-C18-F84-B-FD83-4-C50-80-B5-536770-CDC60-B.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/C5kW...

Re: Irish provincial maker?

Was there any update to IRH? Here is a set of 3 fiddle pattern salt spoons marked IRH STER. I find the John Irish attribution one of the most tentative attributions I’ve come across, It just doesn’t fit. https://i.postimg.cc/nVdBMq2s/24018-B2-D-ADFD-4862-B144-EEFB047-E61-A7.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/...

Re: Early 19th Century Georgian Teaspoon Unknown WW mark

This is just an Exeter spoon by William Welch. After researching and finding other spoons with the same punches it seems like Exeter had 3 lion passant punches in 1820. One square, one wavy bottomed and one like this spoon (more wavy!) Here’s a William Hope mustard spoon’s mark: https://i.postimg.cc...

Re: Boin - Georges Boin mark?

Wonderful thankyou for the information. It is 12.7cm long and weighs 34g.

There’s a Marquis crest that I’ve posted pictures of (see the Family crest section here on this forum).

Boin - Georges Boin mark?

I came across this mustard spoon marked in a lozenge ‘Boin’ no other symbols in the lozenge. Is this the mark of Georges Boin? I cannot find reference to this mark online so if anyone could help give a rough date also it would be great. It’s also marked for 950 silver. https://i.postimg.cc/ZKJ2nmbP/...

Re: Unknown Scottish / Irish Quaich Mark

You’re very welcome it’s a beautiful object. I wish I could find something like this!

Those dates are birth and death so his working period is closer to the later part. Hopefully you’ll be able to find out better dating for it.

This little pictureback teaspoon I think is from Newcastle and possibly by Samuel Thompson but it doesn’t quite match his mark, any thoughts? https://i.postimg.cc/LstpJ3bT/0-C19-A93-F-5-B47-4252-8-D9-B-C807161-A2-BC0.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/gJGP869P/3-B94-EF09-7-FA9-4666-BC9-D-33-E15-FA933-AD.jpg h...
